KURSK/RUSSIA, July 20, 2017 – Hobas, the Austrian-based supplier of GRP pipe systems, is aiming for a future collaboration with Russian companies in the fields of public water and wastewater management and iron ore production. In 2016 the German-Russian Center for Economic Cooperation and Development was established in the Russian region of Kursk on the initiative of the ASG Spremberg AG.

Initial talks for a possible cooperation in the areas of innovative water and wastewater technology as well as industrial pipeline construction took place in June 2017.

One year ago, the German-Russian Center for Economic Cooperation and Development was established in the Russian region of Kursk on the initiative of the ASG Spremberg AG. The company also manages the industrial park “Schwarze Pumpe” in the German city of Spremberg, where Hobas has already successfully implemented a project with GRP process water and sewer pipelines. Hobas now represents this know-how as part of an economic delegation that aims to launch sustainable economic cooperations between German and Russian companies.
Hobas already had initial talks with Vodakanal Kursk and Vodakanal Kursker Oblask, both players in public water and wastewater management, as well as the private iron ore producer Metalloinvest.
Possibilities for a future collaboration will be discussed in more detail over the next weeks and months. Apart from various applications, the design of a common industrial park “Schwarze Pumpe II” in Kursk will be a central topic.

“We discussed solutions that Hobas has successfully implemented in the industrial park ‘Schwarze Pumpe’ with the Russian companies. Our primary objective is to create a win-win situation for both countries on the two markets”, says Mario Frieben, sales director of Hobas Germany.
The Oblast Kursk is situated in southwestern Russia. Iron ore mining, iron processing as well chemical and food industry are the most significant economic sectors. bi
